need some advice from fellow members preferrably someone who has replaced a fire wall. as you can see in some of the pictures i posted my cowl and the firewall are fairly rotted so i plan on replacing the fire wall and upper cowl with the AMD parts but i want to do it with taking as little as possible off the car

my question for everyone is how should i go about bracing the car and if i should make a jig for the whole car to sit on before i start taking it apart and what i should do to make sure my car is straight when its all done, im not exactly sure where to start so any input would be greatly appreciated and i have time before i start the firewall, i have to finish the trunk area first because its already apart, so any thing you have that mite help me please give me your thoughts (its my first restoration trying to get as much help as i can)

thanks
Bryan

Hi Bryan,
My Challenger looked a lot like yours in the firewall area. I changed mine out as you are thinking of doing.

I first studied lots of threads on here to figure out just what needed to be reinforced on the body of the car. I then went and bought steel to frame up the front of the car. I only have one picture of my car with the framing under the front of the car and hope this helps out. The rest of the car was all together. These cars are very rigid and lite, taking out one piece of the car and having it supported will keep every thing in place.

There is a thread here on moparts.com, in the member projects & survivor pictures called, "Project Rust Bucket: 1971 Challenger R/T". This thread has lots of pictures and you can see many ways to rig up the body of your car to hold it in place to change out your firewall.

These cars are not perfect from the factory. Yes they had tooling to hold the pieces together as it was welded together, but as you can read from anyone that has restored any of the old chrysler cars, no, one car is just like the other.

Just one more thing that I found to be just a little hard to work with was that I bought the cowl and firewall as one unit. I don't know how perfectly square these two items are from the vendor, but it was difficult. With the two pieces welded together it is a very rigid structure and I had to work hard to get the unit installed.

To all that read this, I am in no way a pro at this restoration stuff. This is just the way I did it and in no way implying that this is the only way or may not even be the way to do it at all. I don't want to come off like I know anything, I'm self tought.

Good luck, I will attach a pic.
Steve

and theres a change in plans with the finished project, ive been looking at different cars on the internet and toying around with different combos in my head, so my plan for the car is

B7 blue
black vynal top
black interior
black R/T stripe
power windows
rallye guages
15x7 black steel wheels with dog dish caps
440 sixpack 4 speed w/ console
shaker hood

its pictured in my head and the only thing i would want different is a Hemi in place of the 440+6 but lets face it im 18 i cant afford no Hemi
